Assignment Week 4: Paramedic Education Program

Assignment – You are to pick a topic of your choice relating to the field of emergency medical services. This topic must be submitted to the designated instructor for approval, by email. Duplication of topics will not be allowed; a student who first submits a particular topic, will own it. Once you have been given approval, you will thoroughly research the topic, which will require effort on your part. You should plan on visiting an academic library (electronically if you wish) to consult multiple references on your chosen topic. Sources of information may include journals, textbooks, Internet information (must be scholarly or government sites; no wikipedia), research documents, personal interviews (experts), or other appropriate reference material.
Purpose – This assignment is meant to be an opportunity for you to look closely at an issue that interests you and that you would like to learn more about. Nearly all subjects, even clinical topics willoften involve some type of controversy. You are to present all sides (pro and con) and weigh in with your opinion. Your opinion, however, must be supported by facts. As part of our goal to make you responsible professionals who are able to think critically and guide our profession in the future, we feel that this is an important project for you to complete. Failure to complete this assignment satisfactorily will result in failure of the program due to incomplete coursework.

What you do after you have selected an approved topic and have done your research:

You will need to prepare a research paper that includes a minimum of 6-pages, 10-12-pt font, 1-inch margins, that is typed and double-spaced. Please limit your papers to no more than 10-pages. Included in your paper is to be a cover page and a bibliography of your sources (pages not included in minimum). APA is the preferred method for citations (APA, 6th edition). Your paper should be organized by the following large sections: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Discussion, and Conclusion.In addition to content, format, logical organization of ideas, grammar and spelling counts.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
